RNSafe is a mobile application that increases patient safety and nursing efficiency by centralizing the medication “double check” procedure.

Project Overview

RNSafe is a combined mobile and web-based application that replaces the traditional two-nurse medication “double check” with a designated, centrally located nurse. Inspired by the e-ICU telemedicine model, this application increases patient safety and reliability while improving the efficiency of medication administration.

Healthcare Context

Medications errors (wrong drug, dose, route, concentration, and/or rate) are the largest source of errors within the hospital. The administration of certain high-risk medications requires an independent double check for verification.
